Life: Taking a Woman Fly Fishing…………

Now, I could have categorized this under Outdoors, Fly Fishing, Sports, Photography, Mental Health or Nature to name but a few categories that might fit. But, I chose Life. Because, fly fishing, amongst many other outdoor pursuits lends itself to many positive outcomes that enhance relationships and self.

Over the many years that I have been fishing, and particularly fly fishing (50+ years), I have had the pleasure to fish with family and friends, male and female, young and old. For me, it has always provided a means to share, teach, grow in patience, set someone on a course to individually enjoy the past time of fly fishing. It is very rewarding.

For some reason, the concept of fishing with a woman is often nixed by men. Why is that? Perceived incompetency…a male only predilection…hanging with the guys only…a machismo perception of the sport??? I don’t think it is often the above biases that preclude men from inviting a woman to fly fish and share the joy of the past time.

Now you can come across certain studies that suggest a possible mental clash of sorts, but such generalizations are very touchy subjects these days. Now, I have noticed, with my own personal experiences, that my wife a woman can visit quite a bit and that they do like to talk to the fish before they hook them, as they fight them, land them, admire them and release them.

Somewhere there are word meters that chart the amounts of word usage in a given day by men and women. If you have one, don’t take it with you on an outing with a woman…just sayin’. Trout Caught & Safely Released

    First of all the photos are amazing. But then to add my two cents I have fly fished with many men I have listened to as they go on and on about the where the how the what I am
    Doing wrong. Not that any of it is bad, because I am thankful for good advice, but I have fished with my share of men who see more chatty than my girlfriends when we are on a charged topic.

    Thank goodness you are above only going fishing with men. SOme ladies have a lot to offer this sport

    I see very few women fly fishers locally. I do see women gear fishing along with other men more often though. Nice article…and true I seem to talk to the fish as I try to land them. 🙂

    way back in the day…mid 90’s…i picked up some concordance software from oxford university.

    i used it primarily to distill word lists from specialty documents then use them to set crosswords.

    one of its functions was frequency analysis of word and phrase usage in writing and speaking.

    although the nsa has not…you have come to the conclusion i did…TMI. even if you are aware of something it may be best to ignore it. toothy, carnivorous dust bunnies under the bed being an example.
